37. ACAPULCO GOLD "SPIT"

Inspired By: Beat Street (1984), Louis Vuitton and Chanel logos

When Acapulco Gold run find their reference point, they've got a good habit of seeing it through to the finish in style. With their 'SPIT' series they took RAMO's CAP-style nemesis from 'Beat Street's ubiquitous (and crappy) tag and applied it to Chanel and Louis Vuitton logos as some kind of streetwear declaration of war on flossier brands. Old heads could chuckle at the reference to a cult classic, while younger heads could appreciate the graffiti and luxury elements of each design. The sweatshirts from this set were particularly strong in the graphic execution stakes.
